101 evidences for a young age of the earth and the universe is an extensive list of arguments for young Earth creationism (YEC), compiled by Don Batten in June 2009 for Creation Ministries International (CMI). The apparent intent of the article is to help other creationists struggling with cognitive dissonance, and for use as a conversion tool.
Batten collects a variety of supposed uncertainties in science dealing with the past that could allow one to simultaneously maintain belief in the validity of the scientific method and the literal interpretation of the Book of Genesis through confirmation bias.
A failure to understand consilience is why many creationists postulate a conspiracy amongst scientific investigators, as the author does here.
It is important to note that creationists often use the term "uniformitarianism" in a different way than modern science does, and insist that it also refers to a uniformity of geological rate with no regard for well-known prevailing conditions. It is not used to obtain absolute dates, but to compare the age of one region to another, whose age is known through radiometric dating.
In addition to numerous factual errors and failures to understand the theories which it is intended to criticize, the document suffers from faulty logic.
